    I have hats ranging from 73/8 to 7 3/4 in my trunk and they all fit the same.  I can try on multiple hats in the same year with the same size shown on the tag from the same mfg at the same clinic and have one that fits, one that's too big and one that's too small.

    Extend this part to include a tag.
     
    Note that this part requires intent.
     
    In cases where the batting helmet is accidentally hit with a batted
    ball on or over fair territory or a thrown ball, the ball
    remains in play the same as if it has not hit the helmet.
     
    If a batted ball strikes a batting helmet or any other object foreign
    to the natural ground while on foul territory, it is a foul
    ball and the ball is dead.
     
    If, in the umpire’s judgment, there is intent on the part of a
    baserunner to interfere with a batted or thrown ball by dropping
    the helmet or throwing it at the ball, then the runner would
    be out, the ball dead and runners would return to last base
    legally touched.

    A sarcasm emoji?

    I'm not accusing Thunderheads of this, but there are certainly posters who would take the exact same pitch if it happened to (insert name of your favourite douchebag player here) and wonder why PU didn't eject him immediately.

    Well....
     
    This is from OBR, I think we can apply it even if the ball was picked up and not kicked:
     
    If, in the judgment of the umpire, the
    runner deliberately and intentionally kicks such a batted
    ball on which the infielder has missed a play, then the
    runner shall be called out for interference.

    Several vendors come to several clinics I attend each year.  It's not "all the big dealers" at everyone, but there's certainly a good opportunity to see most of the stuff.

    Good points, except that this call wasn't made in NY and since it was a "good" throw to F4(?), it can't be reviewed in NY whether it was called out or safe.

    And, he went to talk to the umpire who tossed him.  All perfectly fine in MLB.

    Do "they" adjust this chart based on the height of the batter?
    I'm glad to see the high strike called (well, when it is a strike).  Makes it easier to call it at the levels I do.
    One of the talking heads said something to the effect that Cabrera was upset about a pitch earlier  in the at-bat (I think).  The chart shows that he has nothing there to be upset about.

    He starts to, but since the third out was called at frist, there's no need to do so.
     
    It's similar to a steal on a ball 4 / check swing situation -- note the call, but don't make it until the check swing is ruled on.

    I personally agree with that conclusion and is how I vote when asked about bats.  But, I do recognize that different leagues have different goals and can come to different conclusions.
     
    I'd rather open the can of worms during the offseason than in the middle of a game.

    The runner did not violate the rule.

    He could have, but it would have been wrong to do so, imo.

    I'd call it either way.

    It's also because in 3-man the rotation changes on a 3-2 pitch with two outs and R1 only.
     
    Some make the same change in 2-man.
